Mass Effect: Legendary Edition Enjoys BioWare’s Best Steam Launch Ever

And EA's second-biggest overall, behind Apex Legends.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition (4)

A remastered collection of the original Mass Effect trilogy is something series fans have been desperate for for a long time, and now, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is here to deliver just that. Based on the game’s debut in the UK retail charts, it seems like it’s got off to a great start, and it seems it’s doing rather well digitally as well.

At least, it’s doing well on Steam. According to Steam ChartsMass Effect: Legendary Edition had a peak concurrent player count of 59,650. It’s worth noting that until a couple of years ago, EA’s games did not release for Steam, with many being brought over to the platform belatedly. Even so, Legendary Edition is BioWare’s most successful Steam launch to date. In fact, it is also EA’s second-best Steam launch of all time, behind only Apex Legends (though that has a pretty healthy lead, with a launch day peak concurrent player count of 330,879).

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Though the remastered collection doesn’t currently include Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer mode, project director Mac Walters recently said that could be added to it down the road.
